Mangosteens in Philadelphia

Looks like Di Bruno Bros. in Philadelphia has gotten its hands on a shipment of mangosteens.

In the coming weeks, Di Bruno Bros. (1730 Chestnut Street; 215-665-9220) will carry a very, very limited supply of the fruit, at an intriguing/slightly frightening price of $45 per pound (the average mangosteen weighs about a third of a pound).

That's about $15 a 'steen, for those of you slow on the math tip. [via Don Luis]
